2013 Clinic Schedule
August 2nd & 3rd - Clicker Training Clinic
Participants in this clinic will learn the basic science behind operant conditioning and classical conditioning and how these techniques can solve many daily behavioral issues as well as teach an animal new behaviors. Working with a marker signal (clicker) is one aspect of positive reinforcement we will be covering. Topics will include: How to start using a clicker, how to use it for counter conditioning as well as shaping new behaviors, common pitfalls to avoid, discover what really reinforces your horses behavior and much more! Lecture with demonstrations, group exercises, and individual sessions with participants horses.
If your horse has any fear/aggression issues, lacks motivation, or you simply want to interact and learn with your animal in a way that creates trust, connection, and best of all, IS SUPER FUN, this is the clinic for you.
You do not need a horse to attend. You may audit all sessions and participate in the group exercises.
No theory, no opinion, just science.
